We're "at it" again with the pallet wood! We needed a nice place for my family to dine when they came for a visit, so we built a fun table. Hope you enjoy our tutorial and find some time to "al fresco" dine in your near future! Check out our website for full details. Erin @ Upcycled Ugly

We first cut the legs from pallet supports- we chose 30".

We screwed on leg supports from wide pallet slats. We chose 38".

We screwed on a horizontal board support (which we bought) in the length of 84". This was a 1x6.

We added side slats for top support and a place to nail the top boards in. These were also 84". These were 2x6 boards from the box store.

We added a block support for our gutter support boards to screw into.

We used 1x3 boards to create a length-wise support. We are going to have to replace these with thicker boards or add more support boards soon because the table is slightly dipping in the middle.

We cut the gutter to our desired size (5'), drilled drainage holes, and caulked end caps on.

We cut the slats to size (leaving a gap in the center for the gutter to sit in) and nailed them to the side supports and the center gutter supports. We sanded and polyurethaned the top slats and we painted the legs in a black.

Got a question about this project?

  • Nancy Spencer Carlson

    @Erin@UpcycledUgly No need to replace the supports under the gutter. Just turn the table over and glue/screw another 1x3 to the existing one! That should do the trick!
    And it's a really cool table!
